HOUSTON – An unlicensed after-hours bar in Southwest Houston has been shut down.

Documents from a lawsuit state undercover police officers who arrived to serve a court order at Avani Lounge at 6603 Harwin Drive early Sunday morning found at least 600 club-goers drinking and partying inside.

Police say they also found coolers with beer and liquor.

Last week, a judge entered a temporary restraining order to close the bar.

The order says the bar will stay closed until a valid liquor license can be obtained.

Police say they found the club had been serving alcohol after 2 a.m.

A hearing in the case is scheduled for May 26.
